Escape to your own private retreat
When was the last time you entered a home and became completely enchanted? Nestled on almost 2.4 acres of lushly landscaped gardens and mature trees, this luxury home on large acreage is a truly a haven from the everyday bustle of life.
The minute you cross the threshold of this newer construction custom European-style estate in the exclusive Buell Mansion neighborhood, you will feel as though you have entered into another world. As you close the door behind you, a first glimpse into the resort-style pool area inspires an immediate sense of inner calm and tranquility. A row of expansive Palladian windows frame the view to the courtyard and allow the entry foyer to be flooded with radiant light.
With almost every room opening onto the stunning pool and courtyard area, the design of the home evokes a sense of being in a Mediterranean villa. The sparkling pool reflects shards of light onto the ceilings of adjoining spaces, creating a definite feeling of enchantment and relaxed living. The sunshine reflecting off the gleaming alder wood floors beckons you into the expansive kitchen and entertaining areas beyond.
This Colorado luxury home simply begs to be used for entertaining. During the summer season, your guests will feel as if they have been transported to a different country as they enjoy mingling through the elegant French doors between the interior and the exterior of the home. A large outdoor kitchen area is purposefully designed for catered parties and the ease of access to the main indoor kitchen allows for efficient and sophisticated food service at every occasion.
During the winter season, your guests will be bathed in a warm glow from the dual fireplaces bracketing the dining room and salon. The coffered ceiling and tromp l’oeil sandstone pillars that define this space create an elegant yet intimate setting, reminiscent of a time when graceful dinner parties were held by candlelight as a pianist beautifully wove in gentle strains of music.
In this same spirit, the private spaces within the home genuinely inspire relaxation and repose. The master suite lives true to its name: it is a suite of one’s own, away from the rest of the home. As you enter the master wing, your first view is that of a private courtyard with a gurgling waterfall. The cozy private sitting area is the perfect place to read a book in front of the fireplace or enjoy a glass of wine after dinner. The main master bedroom enjoys glorious views of the pool area through the large Palladian windows that define a central theme of the home. Sunlight reflects off the pool and creates a swirl of dancing lights on the cathedral ceiling as the generous fireplace warms the space during winter months.
As is the custom in Europe, this home’s master bath is a luxurious retreat. A bow window wall facing the central courtyard allows the whole space to be flooded with light and is a perfect setting for the large vanity area. Separate sink areas and an over-sized soaking tub are tastefully arranged along the circumference of the space to allow for access to the spacious walk-in glass shower from both sides. An enormous master closet suite, comprised of two separate rooms, allows for plenty of room to store and display your wardrobe, as well as to create a personal yoga or exercise area.
The guest wing is located on the other side of the public spaces and is separated from the home by a large, bright mud-room lined with custom alder cabinetry. This transitional space is perfect for accessing the home from the garage courtyard, which houses two adjoining 2-car garages and a large area for outdoor play time for children and adults alike.
Which brings us to the central masterwork of the home: the large chef’s kitchen and family entertaining area, designed to allow the chef unobstructed views to the family and dining areas and a freedom of flow in-between these spaces. A large walk-in pantry — lined with white-washed alder cabinets — offers ample storage for all of the supplies a well-stocked kitchen needs, as well as a small desk area for pouring over cherished recipes. This kitchen was truly designed to be the heart and hearth of the home.
The lower level is an entertainment dream! A large, well-designed bar area overlooks the media room, which is complete with a Crestron entertainment system, a fireplace area, and a special room for ample wine storage. The open space design easily accommodates theater seating and a large movie-style screen, as well as a pool table and/or game table. French doors open into a large, state-of-the-art gym complete with a full set of exercise equipment.
The upstairs level is expressly designed to comfortably accommodate all of your family and guests. A suite of guest rooms — each with their own luxurious bathroom — are connected via a gallery-style hallway with beautiful views overlooking the pool and courtyard. A grand common lounge area overlooks the family room below by way of a Romeo and Juliet inspired balcony, allowing sunlight to flood this soaring space.
Escape from the hectic pace of your accomplishments and come home to a place where you can truly relax and regenerate. Make this elegant house your home. You deserve it!
